Weighted projective lines and elliptic curves

The modular curves of low level can sometimes be describes as weighted projective lines. For example, over $\mathbb{Z}[1/2]$ the compactified stack of elliptic curves with full level 2 structure is ...

Automorphisms of the modular curve defined over $\mathbb{Q}$

Let $p\geq 3$ be a prime number. The modular curve $X(p)$ can be considered as a connected smooth projective curve over complex numbers. There is a subgroup $\mathrm{PSL}_2(\mathbb{F}_p)$ inside its ...

When is $X_0(N)$ representable?

Fix a base ring $R$. Is the rigidification of the modular "curve" $X_0(N)$ in the sense of Abramovich-Olsson-Vistoli representable iff $N\geq 5$ and $N$ is $0, 2, 3, 6, 8, 11 (\mathrm{mod}\: 12)$? ...

Isomorphism between 2nd symmetric product and Jacobian

Let $X=X_0(N)$ be hyperelliptic with $g(X)\geq 2$ with $\infty$ as a cusp and $\iota$ as the hyperelliptic involution. Then the map $$X^{(2)} \longrightarrow Jac(X)$$ $$D \longrightarrow [D-\infty -\...

What is the modular curve for level 1, 2?

An elliptic curve over a scheme $S$ is the data of a proper smooth morphism of schemes $\pi: E\rightarrow S$ whose geometric fibres are connected curves of genus $1$ and a section $e: S \rightarrow E$....

When is the conductor of an elliptic modular curve equal to its level?

Suppose the usual modular curve $E=X_0(N)$ over $\mathbb{Q}$ has genus 1 (e.g. $N=15$). Define the conductor of $E/\mathbb{Q}$ as the ideal/integer: $$M=\prod_{p}p^{f(E/\mathbb{Q}_p)},$$ where $$f(...

Local-global compatibility and modular curves

I have been told by some people that local-global Langlands compatibility for $GL_2$ (the vanilla version, not the one being developed in this decade by Emerton and others) implies Shimura conjecture ...
